Akara's OUSP multiplexes data center protocols FC, FICON, ESCON and GbE directly into flexible SONET payloads to extend enterprises' business continuance applications over existing SONET/SDH, dark fiber or DWDM networks.
The verification configurations included using Akara's OUSP to extend TrueCopy(TM) replication over a SONET OC-3 connection to a simulated distance of 20,000 km and performing the same operation using a SONET OC-48 connection over fiber.
The OUSP satisfies the quality of service (QoS) requirements of the most demanding business continuance applications and flexibly allocates bandwidth to multiple protocols only as needed, reducing expenses associated with network inefficiencies and unnecessary capital costs.
Akara's OUSP is a cost-effective, high performance storage extension device that reduces initial capital costs by up to 80% compared with traditional channel extenders.
Akara's OUSP is a customer-premise device that enables enterprises to extend these business continuity applications over greater distances (MAN and/or WAN within the same device) by connecting to existing SONET, DWDM or dark fiber networks.
Akara's OUSP qualification is an important step toward bringing a combined EMC/Akara low-cost, high performance and secure storage extension offering to our customers, partners, distributors, and resellers," said Ed Ogonek, President and CEO of Akara.
Akara's OUSP enables us to provide customers with immediate access to an affordable managed service solution that provides low latency over extended distances and greater security by utilizing a point-to-point SONET-based circuit.
Akara's OUSP multiplexes data center protocols such as Fibre Channel, ESCON, Gigabit Ethernet and FICON directly into flexible SONET payloads to extend enterprises' business continuance applications over existing SONET/SDH, dark fiber or DWDM networks.
